Violet Alden is the younger sister of the Boxcar Children. She is 10 years old, very shy, and doesn't like big crowds. She is a wonderfully talented girl who can paint and draw like a professional. She's also great at playing the violin and sewing. Violet loves animals, is caring to everybody, and in the books she is referred to as a great photographer. She has light brown hair, and because her favorite color is purple, she often wears an article of purple clothing. She is shown to be a high school freshman by the seventh book. In the sixteenth book she gets a white kitten named Sugar Cookie.

Violet has stated she would like to be a nurse. She is extremely delicate, worries a great deal, and becomes sick and cold very easily.

In the new animated movies she has black hair and purple eyes.
